in california of a heart attack, they could not even find calvin coolidge. of course, the punch line here is it is a shame they ever did. but the vice president would stay home. they did not even go to washington, d.c., in many cases. now they live in the naval observatory, but the first one to do so was walter mondale and it was not until the 1970's that the vice president even stayed in the city. there were no major airways in, roadways in, and they finally found coolidge, and there was no justice of the peace around. his father was basically a notary, and he took the oath with his father with his hand on the family bible in the living room. the role of the vice president has changed considerably, and i would give credit to both romney and obama for picking a vice presidential nominee that not only could help them get elected but could help them govern. i think these are both, to a degree, responsible selections in that respect. i think no matter who wins, we will see either ryan for biden -- or biden play a significant role over the next four years. >> we are previewing the upcoming de
